Had VSG on 5/10/18. No problem drinking broth a whole Protein Shake (all over like 90 minuets of course). Popsicles are great. Still haven’t tried Jello. But Water? No matter how small of sips I take, it feels like it gets stuck. Did anyone else have issues with the water part right after surgery?

Try drinking Water at different temperatures maybe? I've been lucky to have no issues with water, but I've seen others say they can only have it icy cold, or only luke warm etc.

Otherwise, maybe try flavouring it lightly with something that doesn't add calories ?

I am almost 4 months post op and still can't have straight water. I was told it is the texture of water that doesn't agree with bariatric patient's pouches after surgery. I mix water with caffeine free tea, crystal light, or calorie free water additive. Like the other poster said, you can try different temperatures of water. But if all else fails, I'd mix something with it.

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      desired range fat % 11-22 / fat mass 17-38.5 lbs
      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
